I've been on Pristiq 100MG for roughly 9 months or so. It's working well but I have been noticing lately I have been experiencing some side effects. Notably reduced appetite and upset stomach. Is it possible that I could develop side effects after many months on the meds? I did notice that this started about a month ago at the same time I started a cold. I'm long since cured from the cold but I still feel the upset stomach and low appetite.

Should I contact my doctor or let it ride out for a bit to see if it fixes itself? Has anybody else experienced a similar situation?

Hi there,

If it doesn't go away soon, I would contact the doctor. It may or may not be from the medication. But if you are really uncomfortable with it, I would certainly let the doctor know. I hope it isn't anything serious, and I hope it isn't the med as you said it works well for you. I take pristiq 100mg and abilify. Also xanax.

I wouldn't mind the low appetite part myself. I love to eat. But have been losing weight because I have cut out soda and have been walking a lot. I drink lemon water instead of the pop. So I don't think it makes a person gain weight anyway. I am off topic here, sorry. Getting tired.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Maybe your stomache is upset because you aren't eating enough. Try eating small portions four to six times a day. That keeps your blood sugar level too.

Best wishes,

Hugs, Karen
